Rebuilding – My days in New York 1959-2018 collects pictures spanning about 60 years, selected from professional photographer Martino Marangoni’s archive. Taken in Lower Manhattan and complete with anecdotes and personal stories, these pictures are an extraordinary account of a rapidly evolving city and its street life.

Born from an Italian father and an American mother, Martino Marangoni boards a ship to New York in summer 1959 to go visit his grandparents in the United States. It’s the first time he has been to the U.S.: he’s nine years old, and is bringing along his camera, a Kodak Brownie. From 1972 to 1975, Marangoni studied photography at the Pratt Institute, where he had a chance to discover Robert Frank and Lee Friedlander’s works, identify his own subjects, and develop his own method and style.

As W.M Hunt writes in the epilogue of the book

New York constantly needs to shed its skin; it is always rebuilding. Marangoni is our witness, our eye. He even likes the garbage, the sight and the sound and even the stink of it

Our editorial staff includes people with different professional backgrounds who share a passion for writing and who want to create and develop a dialogue with their readers and with the world.
